TF2 Crash on Loading/Initializing Resources
I have been trying to run TF2, but my computer slows to a halt and TF2 crashes either during "loading resources" or "initializing resources" every time I try to start a game. I have tried disabling PulseAudio, as I know that helps reduce lag in most games, this did not help. Here are my launch options in Steam:
-console -dxlevel 95 -high -sw -w 1280 -h 720 -heapsize 1048576 -gl
And here is the output from TF2:

I am running Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit, I run my games in LXDE most of the time, not Unity. 2 GB RAM, 1.1 GHz Dual-Core Intel CPU, Intel Integrated Graphics. I know it's not powerful by any standards, but this should be enough to run TF2.

Try to start it without any launch options.

No luck with deleting start options.

Is HDR enabled? Go to the game Options -> Video -> Advanced -> High Dinamic Range http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/1891/capturadetelade20130102.png

Try setting everything to LOW quality and see if it helps. If so, set one by one to see what's causing the game to crash.

everything is low, the one time i got it to work, the game played just fine.

I see that you have some Alsa underruns in your log. I think I used to have a similar problem but I don't know if it was with TF2 or something else. I remember that I increased the buffer size in the alsa config. Maybe you can try that.
Koosh Aug 28, 2013 @ 11:26am 
can you explain how to do that? I haven't played with alsa that much, as I normally have pulse on if I'm not playing games.

It should be in ~/.asoundrc
I cannot remember exactly anymore. Try to search on the internet for alsa underrun.

Weird, I can't find a .asoundrc folder in my home folder, and yes I am looking in hidden files/folders.

It should be in /etc/asound.conf then.
